Beaches along Guernsey’s south coast

Petit Port

Surrounded by steep cliffs, the sheltered sandy beach is great for swimming and rock pooling once you’ve climbed down the steep 270 steps to it! There’s a café at the top for a just reward on the way back.

Moulin Huet

Painted by the artists Renoir the views are beautiful as you wind around the cliff path. Moulin Huet tea rooms offer hot and cold snacks and the beach is good for rock pooling and swimming.

Saints Bay

This pretty fishing bay catches the sun and is great for rock pooling. Facilities include a kiosk, parking and toilets.

La Jaonnet Bay

An isolated little cove with no facilities, only accessible via a ladder!

Petit Bot

A pebbly top half is served by a stunning waterfall and then towards the water it gets sandy. Lots of great coastal walks, tea rooms and parking.

Beaches on the west of Guernsey

Rocquaine and Portelet Bay

Rocquaine Bay is backed by fragrant pine forests and leads to the sandy hidden cove of Portelet with its views over to Lihou Island and Fort Grey.

L’Eree

The sandy beach is surrounded by several café’s and is en route to the causeway reaching Lihou Island.

Vazon Bay

Best known as a beach for surfing and water sports, sand racing also takes place at Vazon. Good facilities and great Atlantic swells make it popular.

Cobo Bay

Popular west coast beach with white sand and clear water. Family friendly due to nearby shops and toilets, there’s also bars and the Cobo Bay hotel near by. A great place to watch the sun go down.

Grandes Rocques, La Saline

The fine sandy beach is a great place for rock pooling. There’s also a kiosk, parking and toilets.

Beaches on the north of Guernsey

Port Soif

Popular family beach with kiosks selling hot snacks and beach equipment. Great for rock pooling but there can be strong currents in the water.

Portinfer

A small sandy beach close to a nature reserve with lots of parking. There are no facilities actually at the beach but there are at nearby Port Soif.

Port Grat

A suntrap of a beach with soft white sand, Port Grat is relished by the locals as it’s so secluded. Often used for beach bbq’s, there’s also a great kiosk selling homemade cakes and pizza.

Le Grande Havre

Pretty harbour situated in a large bay

Chouet and Ladies Bays

Two white sandy bays with plenty of parking. There are toilets and kiosks on both sides whilst a golf course, playground and the the dolmens site of historic interest are close by on the common.

Pembroke and L’Ancresse Bays

This long stretch of beach incorporating two bays can catch the north wind but makes it a great place for water sports. Beach café’s are situated on each side, one for dining and one for ice creams and there’s great coastal walks all round.

Beaches on Guernsey’s east coast

Bordeaux

This pretty fishing harbour with two sandy beaches is close to Vale Castle with parking, toilets and a kiosk close by.

Belle Greve Bay

Close to the town centre, this rocky beach has great views.

Havelet

Great for water sports, especially yachting, La Valette Bathing pools are close by with parking and toilets easily accessible.

Soldiers Bay

The rocky beach is surrounded by beautiful scenic views from the cliff path.

Fermain

Although a steep walk, Fermain Bay will treat you with its sparkling water and stunning views. Great for swimming, enjoy a cream tea at the café after.

Marble Bay (Le Pied du Mer)

A favourite of Renoir this remore rocky beach looks out towards Herm and Sark. Accessed via a cliff path, there are no facilities.
